Nature's Fight

Written by: Gail Angel Doyle

Nature’s Fight Leaves of late autumn fight to exists on skeletal trees Their colors have sadly begun to fade Soon they know that a cold winter’s breeze Will blow all their traces of existence away Snowflakes of late winter fight to stay thawed on the ground Their color of white soon will become brown from the dirt of the earth Except for the snowflakes that has covered objects that stand high around Before long spring will melt them to quench its flowers for their birth Raindrops of each season change, they fight to keep their translucent window Though before long, snowflakes in winter’s arrival will cover the rain’s window in magic white And the leaves in the autumn will reflect their rich colors through the rain’s glow As they all struggle to exist in nature’s fight
